  • I loved Dreamworld even though a lot of it wasn't open. 2 of the "big 9" rides weren't working though I knew that before I went as it was mentioned on their website for scheduled maintenance. Staff are friendly, prices for food seem reasonable and I managed to spend the whole day there without getting bored at all. All rides are a lot of fun but there is one called Pandamonium and you get to choose hard or soft. I chose hard and the 3.8g force had me feeling sick after it. I'd recommend doing that one later in the day. Giant Drop and Wipe out were my 2 favorite rides. Also the Peter Brock Museum is awesome not just for rev heads but anyone who grew up in that era of racing. Would recommend for families and thrill seekers
  • This was an awesome place...... I liked the experience with this place very much because the best mind relaxing weekend. This place is also good for kids. Also for adults. The place is well maintained with a lot of equipments and places for fun. I liked it very much
  • In my opinion Dreamworld is the best theme park on the Gold Coast! I always have a wonderful day full of rides, food and shows. It is so good I am going back tomorrow to go to the White Water Park and then dry off on some of my favourite rides at the main park. It truly is a Dreamworld!
  • Wow what a day. Thank you for a wonderful family day out. Staff were friendly and took safety very seriously. Happy smiling faces. Park and amenities were clean. All in all a great day for us all. We will be back this week and next time we are in QLD we will visit again. Thanks again to everyone at Dreamworld
  • Seems to vary depending on the day and time of season, but if you're able to avoid it during school holidays or weekends then the queues are a lot more manageable. I've been once in early December and once again in February. Most staff were helpful but we did encounter one staff member who just wasn't interested when I mentioned my father's restraint on a ride was actually hurting him. We attempted to ask her a few times if he could swap to a different restraint, but she just powered through checking the rest of the restraints and told him to just enjoy the ride. He is a fit man but we were both genuinely concerned he'd hurt his back. We were relieved it didn't result in permanent injury, but I did wonder what would have happened if my dad's gut feeling was right and something went wrong while the ride was operating, since the ride operator didn't want to know about it. Most of the rides we tried were the more extreme rides, and we enjoyed most of them, but I had a really bad experience on the "Wedgie" slide which is a sheer drop water slide. The seams on the slide were quite sharp and scraped my bare back all the way down the slide. When I got up with an aching raw back and told the staff, they shrugged it off and said, "yeah it's just how the ride is". If the staff had warned me that this was so common for riders to experience, I wouldn't have gone on it, it just sucked. Good points of the park were easy to operate lockers (for a fee), being able to queue under shade cloths at Whitewater World, and the photo passes which, if you go in a larger group, tend to be worthwhile. Points for improvement could be having more access to free sunscreen (we could only see kiosks selling it, but this really could be a service offered to guests who have already paid just to be there and may leave early if the sun is burning them; some people are more likely to just go without sunscreen if they have to buy an overpriced bottle). Introducing a conveyor belt for some of the tubes/mats at Whitewater World would also make queueing a lot easier and make the wait more bearable on busy days.
